Getting Ready

Prep was easy peasy, I printed off the five different coloring choices, grabbed some crayons and we were all set. (Colored pencils or markers would work well too.)

Couldn’t get any easier!

Color by Sight Word

Since there were five different choices, I placed the papers on the table and let the kids choose which one they wanted to tackle first.

Each sheet has sight words from our amazing combined sight word lists, so I knew they would all give students great reading practice.

Together we looked at the key at the top of the page.

We read each word and then they colored the box to match the key: “it” was pink, “of ” was yellow, etc.

It was finally time to color!

The students chose the section they wanted to color first.

They read the word, looked at the key to figure out what color the section should be, and then used their crayon to color it.

We continued reading the words and coloring each section until the picture was revealed!
